Or: my hobby is getting out of hand.
Left to right: M70/M90/M6300/M4300/M2300/M40/M50
Back: M4500/M6400 Covet/M6500 Covet/M6500 Covet
Not pictured: the shitload of M6500 parts machines I have and a well-used M90 next to me being tested.
Untested barebone with no caddies or other parts aside from a CPU, HSF, DVD drive for some reason and two PSUs. And of course the lid lol
CPU seems to be a Xeon Silver 4114. Oh, and it's under warranty until 2021 too.
Started picking parts for a upcoming PC build but I could use some input:
CPU: 3950X, 5950X, or just go with Threadripper?
Board: here's where my extremely autistic specific needs come in:
NO ASUS. After all the trouble with my CH7 (trash software stack, lmao-tier fan control, slow BIOS...
Title. As some people might know, I have a real hard-on for the Vulcar Ingot in GTA V, but it's GTA IV era textures are starting to put me off.
So, is there a way I can somehow upscale them? I was reading about ESRGAN and Gigapixel AI but I know jack about AI/ML besides that.
Title. I have quite a few Dell Precision Mobile Workstations and it's become a bit of a habit that I run SPECviewperf on every one of them and film the benchmark run.
Problem is: the quality is piss poor at best:
With that comes my question: does Elgato or any other brand have a capture card...
Title, looking for a few SSDs for some of my older systems. Preferably 2.5" SATA.
Also looking for a few mSATA SSDs, small ones for the IDE systems I have, up to 128GB will suffice.
Europe only please, i'm not in the mood to get reamed by Dutch Customs.
Has anyone got any experience with the newer Dell Precision Mobile Workstations? I'm thinking of retiring my ThinkPad P50 (which is garbage btw) within a year for a 7530 or 7540.
Few q's: is the cooling any good in the newer Precisions? How's the keyboard and battery life? The STH review said...
SOLD (AT LAST!)
Not sure if there any peeps interested in rugged devices like this on STH, but whatevs:
I like my CF-19 more (and could use the €€€€ for that Volvo I keep talking about!) so i'm selling my Toughpad. Under warranty I had the display bezel replaced as it was starting to peel off...
STH is probably my best hope since this site is mostly aimed at the USA crowd:
How would one acquire a vanity license plate outside CA/the USA? Doesn't need to be registered to a car, I just want it as a vanity plate itself. Preferably also a 1960s one, but I bet that's going to be really hard...
I work a lot with older Dell Precisions that run Windows 2000/XP/7, and with that comes my question: how can I isolate them from my network so my home network doesn't get raped when one of my Precisions gets compromised? VLANs?
This might be a better question for a site like HWBOT, but whatever:
Is the IMC on Ivy Bridge/V2 Xeons worse than on the i7-49xx equivalents of them? I have a Corsair DDR3-2400 kit on a ASUS Rampage IV Extreme with a E5-2620V2 and whatever I do I can't get my RAM to clock above 1866.
